Hop it!

The extent of our garden is slowly being devoured by these little critters. I found them on a small clump of drought-tolerant grass located down the side of the house which is gravel path and fence and no other plants. It’s funny how they sniffed the only greenery out. There was a whole family of […]

There is one more week left of BeckyB’s Square in September challenge with the theme In The Pink. The only rule is that your photograph has to be square. Give it a go! I love playing with my camera especially with a macro lens.  It’s all about experimenting and having some fun. I just so […]

Earlier this year our son Thomas proposed to his beautiful girlfriend Christie. Chief and I were so […]

Square in September – Day 14

Brisbane’s South Bank precinct includes 17 hectares of inner-city parkland with bars, restaurants, museums and a large beach and pool area. It stretches along the bank of the Brisbane river and is a cracking spot to spend some leisure time. There is a 1km walkway shaded by a galvanised steel arbour which is covered in bougainvillea […]

Cropping the photograph to a square has meant missing the full impact of how far the padlocks stretch but you can see that from this […]

Those of you who have been following this Wombat for a while will know that in March 2017, my lovely Dad was awarded the MBE for services to charity and his community. I flew back to the UK to be one of his guests at the palace – yes, that is Buckingham Palace.  It was […]

Square in September – in the pink: day 8

I have been inspired  by Clare’s Cosmos to share my first attempt at photographing the moon – a la professional style. I can see the moon rising from our bedroom window and the balcony is a perfect spot to set up the tripod and ‘have a go’. I researched the ‘how to’ and realised that […]

Square in September – Day 7

Day 7 of the Square in September challenge and I was ‘tickled pink’ with this photograph. Chief and I were spending a few days in Singapore and from our hotel, we had a great view of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel – the swanky one that looks like a boat on stilts. I was checking […]
